The Bucknell baseball team, on its way to Dick Howser Stadium, watched a video of the Bison men's basketball team's upset of Kansas in the 2005 NCAA Tournament.
That little piece of motivation helped them topple another giant – No. 4 overall seed Florida State.
The Bison got a six-hit complete game shutout from pitcher Mathew Wilson to beat the Seminoles 7-0 in their regional opener Friday night at Dick Howser Stadium. That loss is the first for FSU in a regional opener since losing to Western Carolina in 1992.
